colleague in new york, jerry nadler, and eleanor holmes norton for their very strong leadership in opposition to this bill. mr. speaker, the callus indifference that is shown to the lives this health, the well being and constitutional rights of women in this bill simply beggar description. for instance, the bill has no provision whatsoever for women who have been the victims of rape or incest. and there is no exception for a woman's health. this bill would use the awesome power of the state to compel the victim of an -- of a violent assault to bear the child of her attacker and compel a minor child who has been the victim of incest to bear her sibling. how can you even begin to justify the intrusion of federal power into such deeply painful and personal matters. this bill is an assault on decency and common sense. and it adds to the battery of weapons being used by our republican colleagues and their war against women. a vote for this bill is a vote to show contempt for women's health, women's rights, a doctor's role in health care decisions and the constitution, all in one fell

of the weapons used by holmes was an ar-15 rifle, a semi-automatic weapon. if the assault weapon ban of the violent crime control and law enforcement act of 1994 had not been allowed to expire, it might have been perhaps that 12 people, including a little girl, might still be alive. our colleague, gabrielle giffords, was at home, making thankfully a recovery, but the six people who died that day might be alive. and a young man in st. croix who lost his life yesterday and many others in the u.s. virgin islands and across this country might still be alive if that ban was in place. and so again on behalf of myself and my family and the people of the virgin islands, i offer condolences to the family and again say that the family of those who were lost and the families of those who are recovering are in our prayers. at this time i would like to yield such time as he might consume to our democratic whip, a true leader for all americans, leading us on many issues. tonight i believe he's going to talk about voter protection. but he also has been working very hard to make sure that we make it

. >> oliver wendell holmes who was a colonel in the american civil war and became a justice of the supreme court said in a speech in 1884 that to fight in work, you must believe in something with all your might. he said in this speech that this is the fundamental aspect of all wars, small, big. the civil war was the big event in his life looking forward, this idea of the leaving and wanting something with all your might -- that transcends any. in american history. it is a dimension of the art of war that is almost universal, the belief, the want, and a sense of all your might, giving yourself fully to something. without becoming overly spiritual, this is something that is a little alien to us perhaps in the 20th century. navy seals or delta force, i think they tap into that feeling of total immersion in something, giving yourself wholly. i think that is a dimension of warfare that is almost universal. even in these early periods for the skirmishes and complex for less technological and more about ambushes and sneaking up on the enemy, even in these early conflicts, we still can recognize t

out the door. the case dominated the news for one new cycle until tom cruise and katey holmes announced that they were getting a divorce and then it was removed from the main intention. people will be mulling it over for years and years. i would like to focus on three important but somewhat lower profile cases. two of which arise from the criminal law category. and one that involves taxes, but not the health care case. in the case that is called williams against illinois, the court confronted a criminal defendant the was found guilty based on a dna match. evidence left at the scene included samples of bodily fluids and from a dna lab. later, a second technician ran that dna profile against the entire database of other dna profiles and found that that dna profile was the dna profile of the defendant charged with the crime. the question was whether the criminal defendant had a confrontation clause to cross- examine the person that tested the original sample. the only person that testified was the technician that ran the test. they said the one produced was the one in the system.
